Chester FC Girls PDC Further Update

September 28, 2020 Jim Green

Chester FC Community Trust can provide a further update on the Girls Player Development Centre (PDC) programme for the 2020/21 season.
The 3G pitch at Blacon High School remains closed to external users and the school has advised this will be reviewed in November with a view to reopening the pitch on a phased basis.
Therefore we do not expect this season’s Girls PDC programme to commence until January at the earliest, however we will continue to liaise with the venue and provide further updates when available.
Although dates cannot be confirmed at present, we are inviting expressions of interest for players in U8s, U10s, U12s, U14s & U16s age groups.
Please complete an expression of interest form here or email for more information.
The PDC aims to support the development of female players aged 6-16 and offers an advanced training programme with professional coaches in a positive environent.
Players selected for the PDC continue to train and play for the grassroots club while taking part in a coaching programme based on The FA four corner player development model.
Designed to bridge the gap between grassroots football and elite football, the PDC provides a pathway to the Chester FC Women teams or FA Regional Talent Club (RTC) programme for players of exceptional ability.
In recent seasons, more than 20 players have progressed into the Under-18s and first team squads while no fewer than 26 players have signed with an RTC.
